Where we work

BAAG's Member organisations work across a large number of Afghanistan's provinces.  Click on the provinces of the map below to see which organisations are present there and details of their programmes. 

 

Some of our members - Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International UK, Child Soldiers International and Global Witness - operate on a nation-wide basis rather than in specific provinces.

Human Rights in Extractive Mining

  • Advocacy training for a coalition of civil society organizations (CSOs) on human rights, employment rights and the rights of affected communities to help them advocate for a safe environment to live in.
  • CSO staff are trained in the skills needed to defend the rights of workers and communities living near mines and to monitor the activities of the extractive companies.
  • Groups are created in the affected communities and then connected with ministries, mining companies and other relevant organizations to discuss mining activities and the protection of affected communities.
  • They also advocate for mining employees’ rights and for best-practice mining in Afghanistan.
  • Research to highlight the problems and challenges faced by miners and the wider community as mining begins in their area. The results will be shared with relevant government departments in order to urge them to review current mining policies in favor of better practices and solutions.
